The partners in Building the Field have just produced a document titled "Evaluation of Community Engagement," in response to the last Engaged Learning Series event on February 11, 2015 in MInneapolis, MN.
"When the Building the Field of Community Engagement partners began exploring issues important to the field of community engagement, evaluation quickly surfaced as one of the most universal challenges. Even the most experienced practitioners asked: How do you capture the impact of community engagement?"
This document includes some recommendations for evaluating community engagement, a list of indicators of community engagement ("Are People Engaged?"), and an example of how those indicators are visible in the work of Lyndale Neighborhood Association.
